What is depression?
Depression is a sickness that we can trace right back to biblical times when we read about Job, who lost fortune and family and was afflicted with boils covering his body. Who wouldn’t be depressed in those circumstances? Today over 75,000 people per year, commit suicide in North America. Investigations reveal that over half of these victims were suffering from depression. Add to that the fact that only a small percentage who attempt suicide actually succeed. Depression can be indeed a terminal illness. In this article I share six habits that will help you overcome depression without medication.
Who is affected?
Depression seems to be a universal illness that most of us have experienced to some degree in life. We all seem to be susceptible, regardless of position, possessions or popularity. I have met depressed accountants, housewives, pastors, construction workers and businessmen. Even Sir Winston Churchill was given to severe bouts of depression and yet was a great leader at a time of national crisis. Some of the world’s greatest men were plagued with this problem and would fall into a period of depression after some outstanding accomplishment. It seems they had just run out of goals, just as I had when I hit burnout at the age of 27.
